Löw’s lucky sweater sold for €1 million

Coach Joachim Löw donated his lucky sweater from the 2010 World Cup to a children’s charity, which then sold it for €1 million to retailer Galeria Kaufhof, which then donated it to a German football museum being built by the German Football Federation (DFB).

“I hope that the pullover will have a worthy place in the museum and will be well looked after,” said Löw as he handed over the cashmere sweater.

“Maybe I will still need it to bring me luck in other tournaments.”

The sweater earned its reputation as a lucky charm after Löw wore it during three wins when his side scored four goals in South Africa – against Australia (4-0), Argentina (4-0) and England (4-1).

Germany finally lost to eventual winners Spain to finish third in the tournament.

Work on the DFB museum is due to start in 2012 on the site in Dortmund, western Germany. Though the museum will only be completed in 2014, the presentation took place on Monday, a day before Germany are due to meet Belgium in Euro 2012 qualifying.
